I Didn't Think It Was Possible...

OK, someone needs to tell me WTF this is all about??? As a human race are we so beyond considerate and F-ing stupid that someone thought this was OK??? This photo was taken by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection... Here's what they had to say about it.

"15 months ago: This photo released by United States Customs and Border Protection shows a miniature horse in a dog kennel at Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Atlanta. When U.S. customs officials were checking on this large dog kennel inside an airplane that landed at the airport, they were surprised to find a hunched-over miniature horse looking up at them. The incident could land the airline and the passenger transporting the horse into some trouble because the U.S. Department of Agriculture says transporting the horse in a kennel falls under animal cruelty regulations, said Customs and Border Protection spokesman Mike Balero."

Surprised?? You're god damn right I'd be surprised and about as pissed off as can be... You know I'm starting to realize that just when I think we (humans) can't stoop any lower, SURPRISE I find some insane thing like this. OK, so we have Fug's exposing CBER and PEC for their idiocies of horse cruelty. In fact Fug's and people who are passionate about animals like Fug's expose these ass holes all the time. But these people are the LOWEST life form I've ever seen. And you get rid of one two more pop up doing equally dumb or even DUMBER things to animals. How do you look at a LIVING animal that is looking back at you with those sweet eyes and treat it like it's nothing, not even alive.

Ready for some controversy?? Well here you go. I am so STRONGLY against animal cruelty, that I think that people who commit crimes against DEFENSELESS animals, animals who can not talk, scream or help themselves against us. That these people are WORSE than murderers* in prison right NOW!! *within reason, but not much*

It makes my blood boil to no end... And it feels that there is NO end in Sight...

Ok, I'm a third-grader.
UnB-f-ing-lievable!
What kind of person does that, I wonder.
Crap instead of brains, I assume.
Poor little creature. I hope they do get charged with cruelty. How can we treat these animals with such complete disregard for their well-being? I guess they thought it would be cheaper than shipping by truck, eh? Hope the cruelty fine is considerable. Gah.
Um, horses, even miniatures, are not DOGS. I betcha this isn't even the first time....
Take a deeeep breath TX. I hear you, it's so sad. Lots of murderers start out with animals, it's their "training" for moving up to humans..
I will MAINTAIN my good humour, because you're there, TX.
Without people like you, I'd have given up on the human race a long time ago.

First of all Thank you Golightly~ Second~ DAMN it gets hard to just absorb all the insanity without losing it....

It is amazing how the human mind can rationalize all sorts of things, such as cruelty. The mini horse nearly fits in the crate, so everything is just fine, besides it costs too much to ship by regular horse transport, this is faster, everything is cool. NOT.
I am sure the person/people involved are wondering why they are in trouble. Probably cursing their bad luck to be caught. And if they think they can do it again, they will.

GL, you crack me up!

And Trex, what the hell, are you trying to boil my blood?

I think we should shove the asshats who did this into a carrier barely capable of containing their body and stick them on a very long flight...

I just don't get it, what kind of person thinks stuff like this is ok?! Where has the compassion gone for animals. Sometimes it seems there's only a few people who care. (Having a not so good day animal wise, two of our neighbours are shits to their dogs and we have an old man who gives rides on a cart pulled by a miserable unhealthy looking standardbred)

Okaaaay....Who is the Sam Hell loaded the horse in a crate on a plane in the first place!? I mean...what airline baggage checker went "that's a funny looking dog, but okay" and loaded it onto the conveyor belt!? WTF? NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF HUMAN STUPIDITY!

Serioulsy it could have only been better had the crate busted open and the pony gotten loose. Could you imagine?

Chaos on four tiny hooves loose in the cabin at 30,000 feet... Story at 11pm.

What the Hell?

And you're right- One gets busted, killed or otherwise put out of commission and three more spring up to take their place!

Trainer X said...

I know right??? I can't say it enough!! WTF WTF WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!

Trickery said...

Unbelievable.
Would have been just desserts if the little critter had have busted out of that tiny cage and run rampant in an aeroplane - love it.
As for the people, I agree, should be shoved in the box for a flight and see how they enjoy it.

Everyday there seems to be someone out there trying to one up the last moron on stupidity. Seems to be getting worse as the cash flow reduces.

I always equate people who abuse animals with people who abuse children. Same general concept - both are essentially helpless and abuse to either is absolutely appalling. Do people really think that it makes them bigger people that they can take advantage of and abuse something that should be looking to them for help? I still long for the day where animals that lash out at people that abuse them get the same rights and care as abused children receive.
